Specialising in working with families of individuals with additional needs or disabilities, each family's experience is unique and there is no one size fits all solution to addressing the challenges of caring for a loved one with additional needs and disabilities. That's why the counselling approach here is client-centred, collaborative and strengths based, focusing on the individual needs and goals of each family member.

Whether you are a parent, sibling or other family member of a child or adult with additional needs, or a caregiver providing support and assistance, I'm here to offer a space to support you to process, express your emotions and navigate the complexities of caregiving.

You may need support with coping strategies and tools to manage stress, enhance resilience and self care to empower you with the skills you need to navigate the challenges of caregiving more effectively.

If you're struggling with feelings of guilt, stress or burnout, or simply need a safe space to process your emotions we will work through each element bit by bit at your pace. You will be supported with compassion without fear of judgement.

Sessions can take place within private settings in the community or online depending on the clients preference.

There are also different support groups within the community for various issues, please see our events page for more information on these.

Walking and talking therapy

Walking and talking sessions allow counselling to be carried out in nature rather than in the confines of an office space. Many people find they relax much better within a natural environment. This is a refreshing approach that combines the benefits of therapy with nature - be that the forest, park or at the seaside. There are four different settings to choose from and clients that don't wish to sit face to face with a therapist find that this approach is a lot more engaging for them. allowing them to access therapy in a way that is right for them also combining some physical movement.

Benefits include

* Connection to nature - has a calming effect on the mind and body and can help to reduce stress levels and make it easier for some clients to access therapy.

* Physical movement - helps to promote physical health and release endorphins which can help with feelings of anxiety and depression.

* Comfort and accessibility - Some clients find eye contact quite intrusive and difficult and walking side by side with a therapist takes that away, reducing stress and making the client feel naturally more at ease. It can be more accessible for some people who find a traditional office too claustrophobic or travelling to a building and parking too stressful and overwhelming. Some clients also find sitting still for an hour or more very challenging which in itself can increase stress and be a barrier to getting the full benefit of the session and also make things extra tiring for the client.

A full assessment is carried out prior to walking and talking sessions being commenced to ensure your safety and comfort is accomodated as much as possible at every stage.
